There was a time when Minecraft was just as slim as this

Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson has shared a little more information about Mojang’s next big game, 0x10c, telling PC Gamer that he hopes the finished product will feel a little like Joss Whedon’s cult classic sci fi series, Firefly.
“You can try to land on a planet but you mess up and, instead of having the ship just explode like it would in real life, the landing gear gets broken. Then you have to try to fix that by finding resources. Instead of the adventure being flying from here to here, it’s: I set the destination, oh god I hit a small asteroid and the cloaking device broke,” he said.
Having confessed to having waited too long to get multiplayer working on his breakout hit Minecraft, Notch said implementing those elements is next on his list once he has the core mechanics nailed down.
“As soon as it’s fun, I’m going to do the multiplayer. But nothing in the game is fun right now. I need to figure out what is actually a fun game mechanic in all of this,” he added.
Notch has released some new footage of the game, too – remember this is just test material, from the very early stages of development.
